A key lightweight bout between perennial division contenders Kevin Lee and Charles Oliveira headlined today’s UFC Brasilia event.
The highly anticipated main event actually served as a catchweight bout, this after Lee had failed to make the 156lbs weight limit on Friday.
Kevin Lee (18-5 MMA) entered UFC Brasilia looking to build on the momentum of his first round knockout victory over Gregor Gillespie at UFC 244. That win had snapped a two-fight losing skid for “The MoTown Phenom”, who had previously suffered losses to Al Iaquinta and Rafael dos Anjos.
Meanwhile, Charles Oliveira (28-8 MMA) entered tonight’s headliner riding a six-fight win streak, his latest being a first round knockout victory over Jared Gordon in November.
Tonight’s UFC Brasilia main event proved to be a wildly entertaining affair. Oliveira showcased his ever-improving standup before eventually finishing “The MoTown Phenom” with a guillotine choke submission.
